watch the video too
Meteor pao pokraj Samobora? - DNEVNIK.hr
At the end of the video you'll see it break up - this was about the size and brightness of the green one I saw go across the sky in the 80s tho it's hard to tell with the video feed. It was earlier in the day when I saw it - this appears to be just at dusk so shows incredibly bright.
It was "dripping green fire" - was a magnesium earth grazer....thousands of others reported it too,
I don't think anyone caught a video like this tho.
Amazing to catch an earth grazer below the clouds..
Of course it could be a fake but that bust up was exactly the kind of "dripping fire" I saw and lends a lot of credence to the video.
Just to give you a reference and scale/power
This was snapped in Norway last year.
The results when it hit.
Record meteorite hit Norway
As Wednesday morning dawned, northern Norway was hit with an impact comparable to the atomic bomb used on Hiroshima.

Astronomer apologizes for meteorite fuss - 15.06.2006
At around 2:05 a.m. on Wednesday, residents of the northern part of Troms and the western areas of Finnmark could clearly see a ball of fire taking several seconds to travel across the sky.
A few minutes later an impact could be heard and geophysics and seismology research foundation NORSAR registered a powerful sound and seismic disturbances at 02:13.25 a.m. at their station in Karasjok.
Farmer Peter Bruvold was out on his farm in Lyngseidet with a camera because his mare Virika was about to foal for the first time.
"I saw a brilliant flash of light in the sky, and this became a light with a tail of smoke," Bruvold told Aftenposten.no. He photographed the object and then continued to tend to his animals when he heard an enormous crash.
"I heard the bang seven minutes later. It sounded like when you set off a solid charge of dynamite a kilometer (0.62 miles) away," Bruvold said.
Astronomers were excited by the news.
"There were ground tremors, a house shook and a curtain was blown into the house," Norway's best known astronomer Knut Jørgen Røed Ødegaard told Aftenposten.no.
Røed Ødegaard said the meteorite was visible to an area of several hundred kilometers despite the brightness of the midnight sunlit summer sky. The meteorite hit a mountainside in Reisadalen in North Troms.
"This is simply exceptional. I cannot imagine that we have had such a powerful meteorite impact in Norway in modern times. If the meteorite was as large as it seems to have been, we can compare it to the Hiroshima bomb. Of course the meteorite is not radioactive, but in explosive force we may be able to compare it to the (atomic) bomb," Røed Ødegaard said.
